Dear Friend,


I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of BANK DKI JAKARTA 
INDONESIA. I am writing to you in respect of a desperate search for a reliable partner to champion 
this transaction. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $3.5m US dollars (Three 
Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) only. In an account that belongs to one of our foreign 
customer who died along with his entire family in December 2000 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting the next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately we learnt that 
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody 
behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to contact you to release 
the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent 
disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank 
treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained Unclaimed after eight 
years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of a 
foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a 
foreigner and an Indonesian cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I will give you 30 % of 
this money as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10 % will be set 
aside for expenses incurred during the business and 60 % would be for me. There after I and my 
family will visit your country.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to 
the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account 
number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location 
where the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application. I will 
not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not 
entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should 
contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter. “Trusting to hear from you immediately”

Yours faithfully,
